Nissan’s all-new NP300 ‘D23’ Navara is now on sale in Australia, lauching with an initial line-up of 27 variants priced from $26,490 to $54,490 plus on-roads.

Replacing both the D40 and D22 models, the new Navara’s local debut comes one year on from its global unveiling in Thailand, where the new model is built.

In the months ahead, the new Navara will do battle in a rapidly shifting landscape of pickups new and old(ish).

Its biggest rival will undoubtedly be Toyota’s HiLux, which even in its ageing seventh-generation form, remains dominant. An all-new model was revealed this month, and that will be here in October.

Mitsubishi’s got an all-new Triton on the scene, and Ford will have a refreshed Ranger in showrooms late in the third quarter or early in the fourth.

Mazda’s BT-50, Holden’s Colorado and its Isuzu D-Max sibling all remain competitive, and Volkswagen’s Amarok is also a popular offering.


Models in the Navara range will include the DX, RX, ST and top-shelf ST-X, matched to a range of three engines, rear- and four-wheel-drive, three cab and two chassis styles, and two transmissions.

The tubbed dual-cab Navara models will launch first, while the single-cab (cab chassis), king-cab (pick-up utility and cab chassis) and dual-cab (cab chassis) grades will debut in the third quarter.

Depending on the model, engine options include a 122kW/238Nm 2.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engine, along with a pair of 2.3 litre diesels offering 120kW/403Nm and 140kW/450Nm.

Dual-cab pickup models are fitted with a five-link rear suspension arrangement, while others continue with a leaf spring arrangement.

Braked towing capacity is listed at 3500kg for diesels, dropping to 1588kg for petrol models.

Payload capacity ranges from 880 to 1112kg, depending on the model and configuration.
